Been a bit quiet here as I have been ill, well I say ill but actually not officially ill. Let me explain.
I have had what I think is Vertigo? I feel like I am always boring you with my woes but I am not going to moan.
Vertigo is the pits (slighty moany). I have been all over the place. Just lay down for 2 days with my head in one position, very boring. Missed all the sun (bit more moany now).
Felt woozey every time I moved (reaching really whiney). Got some tablets via NHS direct (why does anyone complain about the NHS? They never let me down). Feeling better now but got to go Drs tomorrow incase I have had a stroke....unlikely as my crochet has been bob on!
Anyway, I will include my reduction in dizziness in my smile category if that is ok.
The sun,aaaah, what a difference it makes.
Mr Betty and moi purchased 2 olive trees, he paid and I directed.
We planted them, he planted and I directed some more, tis all about teamwork!
The Virginia creepers have started to creep and make my walled garden area look a bit prettier.
And I bought a couple of extra plants for the top of my outside kitchen cupboard ( every home should have one).
Mr Betty very kindly drove me and my wobbly legs to our local car boot this morn and held me up whilst I struggled around. It had to be done, I needed a fix, you understand.
I was most happy to find 2 flasks for the picnic hamper I purchased last year.
Doesn't it look lovely!
I also bought loads more ribbons from a lady I purchased from over a year ago. Thank the lord she saved some for me ;)
This pic doesn't really do the ribbon justice but I am trying to kill 2 birds with one stone by showing off my new Pyrex at the same time......shepherds pie anyone?
I also got this retro doll making book which is very handy for mini clothes ideas, kitties in mind.
I think the girl on the front cover has been subjected to the same DIY hair cut that I had to cope with as a child, I feel for ya kid I really do.
Picked up this wicked mug for 50p.
It is a bit damaged but I just love the print. It will be filled with pens and pencils like all my other less than perfect mugs. Mr Betty shared his opinion on our mug situation during my purchase but I just ignored him. He does worry so.
Little rose tin, I am sure I will find some thingys to put inside it by the end of the day.
It quite possibly could be ideal for knitting needles? Will check this idea out shortly.
Lastly for today is a picture that is quite possibly questionable.
It is one of those things that you fall in love with but really struggle to work out why.
It has gone straight on my wall and I am pretty sure that that is where it will stay.
Opinions please, love it? Hate it? Not sure? Don't care? Have just dozed off?
It is the start of the holidays for Littlest boy and Largest boy has officially finished school and only has to attend to take his few, final exams.
I will leave you with a picture that brought a little tear to my eye.
Pretty self explanatory as far as pics go, very simple, but to me it just says it all.
I am glad that the 'CAUTION WET FLOOR' sign he came home with is out of sight. He's a good boy really. X
